The most asked question for song selection.

An extensive list for any song genre to make your day that little bit extra unique.


You’ve planned the running of your day, but you have realised you need to think of some songs for specific moments and dances. I am always asked which song works best for a mother/son dance. For such a special dance, it is even more important to pick the perfect song for your day.
